Having received January pension, has understood that when counted valorizatsiju, me have included only 14 years of the experience - time spent on underground works. Why other experience is not considered? How it to check up?

the Tablet under control

Since new year new rules on which the prices for vital and major medicines are formed have come into force.

In - the first, right after New Year`s vacation of Roszdravnadzor has started registration of limiting cost prices of manufacturers of the major medicines. In - the second, the uniform design procedure for all country of limiting trading extra charges which are established for these medicines at regional level has started to operate. Thus, process of formation of retail price becomes as much as possible simple and transparent. Under strict price a cap have got 500 so-called vital and major medical products (ZHNVLS). The list confirmed for 2010, is published yesterday in daily release.

How many medicines will check

Actually the prices will be supervised approximately on the third part of all medicinal production which is available in the Russian drugstores, namely approximately on 5000 medicines. The matter is that in the list of the major it is underlined international nepatentovannoe the medicine name (actually - operating substance). But thus it is a question of all medicinal forms and trade marks, and them 10 times more, than positions in the list.

Experts say that 500 most demanded medicines which have got to the list not only are intended for treatment practically all nozology, but also close the lion`s share of all requirements.

All in territory of our country it is registered about 18 000 medical products (trading names and every possible medicinal forms). Under action of the list from them get an order 5000. Thus, the state promises to fix the prices approximately on third of all chemist`s medicinal production.

Thus other two thirds of medicinal market remain in free To price zone - how many they will cost, on - former manufacturers and sellers, without state intervention will solve.

the prices

Strict measures of price control What for are fixed entered not casually: last year from - for crisis and falling of a rouble exchange rate of the price for medicines have sharply grown. Thus rose in price not only import, but also a domestic production. But when by the summer the rouble was stabilised, and then gradually began to become stronger, in drugstores changed for the better nothing: the prices continued to grow. An excessive demand for the antiinfluenzal means, caused by fear of a pork flu, also has urged on druggists to overestimate of the prices. Then actually political decision on introduction of rigid restrictions on formation of the prices on farmrynke also was accepted. According to the Minister of Health and sotsrazvitija Tatyanas Golikovoj, it there was a necessary measure. The state will actually fix a price level on 500 major preparations till the end of 2010. And will reconsider then their once a year.

As it will be made

Manufacturers and distributors have obliged to register in Roszdravnadzore limiting cost price of each of preparations of list ZHNVLS. Thereby business will actually incur obligations to sell to the wholesale companies of a medicine not more expensively, than will be fixed during registration.

But the price on which the medicine is on sale in a drugstore, depends not only on the manufacturer, but also from the wholesale supplier, and from the retail seller.

Now the maximum size of trading extra charges too is strictly limited both for wholesalers, and for drugstores. Thus, all process of pricing should become absolutely transparent. And occurrence on sale of a medicine from the list of the major at inflated price - easily supervised.

Knowing the registered prices (they will be placed on a site of Roszdravnadzora in an easy approach) and trading extra charges in the region, everyone zhelujushchy can track, what should be a ceiling price of a concrete medicine in its city.
